Passport Processing Services
Cuba Township is processing new passports by appointment only. DS-11 Applications for a U.S. Passport are available online.
The U.S. Department of State processing times have been extended:
- Routine processing of a passport application now takes 8-11 weeks
- Expedited processing of a passport (for an additional $60 per passport) takes 5-7 weeks
Passport processing times begin the day we receive an application at a passport agency or center, not on the day the customer applied for a passport. Mail times may vary across the country.
If you want to renew an adult passport, visit Travel.state.gov’s renewal page.
